Divers needed for underwater cleanup in Morro Bay

Volunteer divers are invited to participate in an underwater cleanup in Morro Bay on Sunday morning.

The event is being coordinated by San Luis Obispo-based Depth Perceptions Diving Services.

The effort will entail cleaning up waste and materials that collects in the waters around the South T-Pier and boat slips.

Items collected may include tires, beer bottles, batteries, lost fishing gear and electronic devices such as cellphones, radios and TVs.

Depth Perceptions will provide free rental equipment and free scuba air fills if needed.

All material collected will be brought to the floating docks for inspection and rinsed for salvage if possible.

Registration starts at 7 a.m. Sunday, and the event lasts from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m.
